I fell asleep last night while reading Armentrout’s Onyx last night. I don’t even think it was 10pm yet. That in itself is sort of amazing. I am such an insomniac and have trouble falling asleep. It didn’t last long, though. I woke right up at about 11:45. I probably got 2 hours of sleep. So, being wide awake, I reach for my book again. I was almost finished and I’m loving the series, so I finished it up shortly there after. Then I started thinking about which book I would start next. I just downloaded McGuire’s Beautiful Oblivion and I went ahead and downloaded the next book in Armentrout’s Lux series, Opal. I started thinking about all the series I’ve started and haven’t finished yet. There are a lot! So, I’ve decided to try to really focus on finishing up some series right now.
Having already mentioned that I don’t want to bog myself down with too many challenges this year, I’ve decided to just focus on one at a time. I’m not counting the Goodreads challenge for this, because that just includes every book I read. So, I looked for a series challenge today, and found one that suits me. Plus, the highest level of the challenge is only 4 series, and heck I can easily knock that off my list quickly. Here’s the challenge:
You can check out all the deets and sign up HERE!
So, here are the series that I can easily think of that I need to catch up on or finish:
Beautiful series & The Maddox Brothers series by Jamie McGuire
I’m listing these two series together since one is the spin-off of the other. I just need to read the Mrs. Maddox novella to finish up the Beautiful series, and then I need to read Beautiful Oblivion. Beautiful Redemption is set to be released at the end of this month. Exciting!
Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency series by Iain Reading
I’ve read the first book in the series and already have the other books on hand thanks to the awesome author liking my review for the first. This series will take me awhile to get through, though. I’m reading these books aloud to my youngest two. My son loves them! Plus he shares a love of root beer with the author!
Shattered Promises series by Jessica Sorensen
Yes, another Jessica Sorensen series. It’s safe to say I’m a fan! I like both her paranormal series and her contemporary series. I’ve only read the first book in this series. I loved the YA version, her very first series, Fallen Star. Now I need to catch up on this NA version of the same story.
That’s fifteen series that I have started and not finished. Believe it or not, there are plenty more. I’ll probably add more to my list as I update this throughout the year, and hopefully knock some of them off by completing them. No, I do not by any stretch of the imagination expect to complete all of these, but I definitely expect to knock 4 of these series off my list. This will be my goal for now. After I complete it, I will probably add another challenge, but I’m going to keep it simple by just focusing on this one for now.
I’d love to hear any thoughts you have on any of these series. Or any recommendations for other series that I may not have read yet. As you can see, I have contemporary romance, paranormal romance, mystery, and sci-fi all thrown into the mix. Some have dark issues and some are just light fun reading. I like it all!
